Biden? Warren? O’Malley? Please.
After Clinton, There’s No One.

Daily Beast, by Kristen Soltis Anderson

Yes, it looks like Hillary Clinton is running. But what if she doesn’t? Suddenly it’s going to be the Democrats’ turn to panic. There are not very many Republicans lying awake at night, unable to sleep, trembling with fear at the possibility of President Martin O’Malley. No, though the Republican Party certainly has its share of troubles heading into the next presidential election, the biggest worries haunting the minds of Republicans hungry to retake 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue are not the specters of the Maryland governor or Vice President Biden or many of the other might-runs out there on the left. And on this

Don´t you just love how Hiltery has been annointed? No others?

I seem to remember another upstart senator with no real credentials being elected president in 2008.

Remember Jimmy Carter? He got elected and all the old bulls in the late 70´s wouldn´t play ball with him to give him his cumuppance.

How did that work out?

Hitlery hasn´t, and never will, make the case for her to be president. Her 2 AM phone call ad just reminded folks that her greatest accomplishment in life was somehow staying married to Slick. And remaining loyal to him in the face of brutal marital infidelity. She managed to come out of the White House ‘broke’ when every other occupant has come out filthy rich. And broke despite stealing the china and silverware. As Sec of State, what did she accomplish? Russian reset? Benghazi? A stable Middle East or North Korea? Other than making fashionable ugly old fat lady pantsuits, she has done nothing!

Nobody ever heard of Hussein until nearly the last minute, then nobody on our side figured an alien moslem could get elected. We were wrong.
I´m sure these things are planned far in advance by people we have never heard of. Be expecting an unpleasant surise.

Keep an eye on Warren.
She´s an absolute elitist phony like Hillary and an economic moron like 0bama, but she´s the next shiny new thing for the dullard progressive crowd who think her ideas are new.

Obama tells Mexico: Illegal-immigrant
children won’t get to stay
Washington Times, by Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/20/2014 5:02:03 AM     Post Reply
President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R. Biden will visit Guatemala on Friday. Mr. Biden will warn officials and parents that illegal immigration is dangerous and that youth won’t be allowed to stay

Obama’s kumbaya
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

Call it the president’s Kumbaya ­moment. It came Thursday, when President Obama announced this: “Above all, Iraqi leaders must rise above their differences and come together around a political plan for Iraq’s future.” Ironically, it’s the same mistake George W. Bush made early on in Iraq: the idea that a political process is the path to security. We learned the hard way — and it took a surge to do it — that it’s the other way around: Security makes politics possible. Right now, an al Qaeda offshoot called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is converging on Baghdad from the north,

300 U.S. advisers heading for Iraq,

Washington -- How big of a threat is ISIS really? The White House wants to find out and is deploying as many as 300 military advisers to Iraq to assess the might of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The jihad group´s rash battlefield successes make them look extremely fierce. They have surged over from northern Syria to blitz major cities in Iraq´s Sunni region, taking Tal Afar and Mosul then moving quickly south. Hundreds of thousands of civilians fled from their path, creating a new refugee crisis. They have advanced on Baquba, just north of Baghdad and are

A weekly State Department bulletin that gets emailed to Capitol Hill staffers is striking some as tone deaf. During a week in which Iraq is quickly descending into another war, most of Secretary of State John Kerry’s work highlighted in the newsletter has nothing to do with that country — or any of the other diplomatic hot spots around the world. The one-page “State Department On The Hill” features a photo of Kerry at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence next to a stock image of colorful fish swimming in bright blue water, meant to highlight Kerry’s two-day “Our Oceans” summit.

TERESOPOLIS, Brazil -- Go ahead, FIFA, stop the music if you want. Fans will keep singing anyway. FIFA limits anthems to 90 seconds so they can get the World Cup games going quickly. But many national songs last much longer, and the fans - particularly South Americans proud to have the cup in their territory - are loudly taking over with a cappella renditions of the anthems that are bringing tears to the eyes of players. Unintentionally, FIFA has created some of the most emotional and patriotic moments of the World Cup. "When we hear the anthem being sung like that, we get

As many as 75 scientists working in U.S. federal government laboratories in Atlanta may have been exposed to live anthrax bacteria and are being offered treatment to prevent infection, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Thursday. The potential exposure occurred after researchers working in a high-level biosecurity laboratory at the agency´s Atlanta campus failed to follow proper procedures to inactivate the bacteria. They then transferred the samples, which may have contained live bacteria, to lower-security CDC labs not equipped to handle live anthrax. Dr Paul Meechan, director of the environmental health

Iraq Forces ´Retake´ Oil
Refinery From ISIS

Iraqi forces have regained full control of the country´s biggest oil refinery after heavy fighting with Sunni militants attempting to seize it, the authorities claim. A refinery employee and witnesses said the insurgents led by the jihadist Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) had withdrawn from the sprawling Baiji complex after losing 100 fighters as troops and helicopter gunships repelled repeated attacks, according to the Iraqi military. The retaking of the plant, north of Baghdad, comes amid calls for the Iraqi prime minister Nouri al Maliki to quit as a condition of US help in driving back insurgents

Whoever wins Thursday’s leadership elections had better enjoy their new positions, because they could be snatched back five months from now. Disillusionment runs deep in today’s House Republican Conference. Members across the ideological spectrum are frustrated with the policy-making process under Speaker John Boehner and tired of the feuding between factions. Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s stunning primary loss provided an opportunity to address both issues by bringing fresh blood into the leadership and pressing something of a reset button. But Thursday’s election is unlikely to calm the waters. In fact, things might get a whole lot rockier with November’s conference elections looming

They go where the opportunity is. Was Joe Biden right? It’s the question swirling through the punditocracy as it debates the latest installment of the can’t-watch, can’t-turn-away reality show, “President Obama’s Very Bad Year.” The question emanates from a 2006 New York Times op-ed that then-Sen. Joe Biden co-authored in the New York Times, in which he suggests that war-torn Iraq should be divided into a confederacy with a weak central government and three largely autonomous states — one for the Sunnis, another for the Shiites and another for the Kurds. But the question, while amusing to mull over, is

U.S. Opposes New Draft Treaty from
China and Russia Banning Space Weapons

The United States is opposing a new draft treaty submitted to the United Nations last week by China and Russia that seeks legally binding curbs on weapons in space amid concerns that both states are secretly building space arms. The draft treaty—updated from a 2008 version—cannot be verified, according to Frank A. Rose, deputy assistant secretary of state for arms control, verification, and compliance. “The United States believes that arms control proposals and concepts should only be considered by the international community if they are equitable, effectively verifiable, and enhance the security of all,” Rose told a June 10 session in Geneva

Editor´s note: Michael Gerson

Dear Post-Dispatch readers, Starting today, Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson replaces George Will on Thursdays and Sundays. (Snip)We believe that Mr. Gerson’s commitment to “compassionate conservatism” and his roots in St. Louis will better connect with our readers, regardless of their political bent. The change has been under consideration for several months, but a column published June 5, in which Mr. Will suggested that sexual assault victims on college campuses enjoy a privileged status, made the decision easier. The column was offensive and inaccurate; we apologize for publishing it.

Justina Pelletier´s legal nightmare

A Massachusetts judge ordered Tuesday that 16-year-old Justina Pelletier be returned to her Connecticut family. His ruling ended a 15-month odyssey that I believe showed that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Boston Children´s Hospital were willing to disregard the rights of her parents and, in essence legally "kidnap" her. "We are stunned," Lou Pelletier, her dad, told me minutes ago by phone. "Justina called us with the news herself. We just want to thank everyone who helped us get our daughter home." Back in February, 2013 the Connecticut teen went to Children´s Hospital for a consultation to complement her medical care

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Patent Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is "disparaging of Native Americans" and that the team´s federal trademarks for the name must be canceled. The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name has gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn´t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has refused to change the team´s name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights groups.

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it has found no emails between any person in the executive office of the president and a top Internal Revenue Service official who has been connected to the improper scrutiny of political groups. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House searched for all communications between the former IRS official, Lois Lerner, and executive office personnel. "We found zero emails," he said. He said the search discovered three emails in which a third party emailed both Lerner and executive office staff. He said one was spam and two others were from a person seeking

The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama is fully engaged in the situation in Iraq – even though he spent last weekend golfing. Carney was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal criticizing the President for golfing instead of paying attention to world affairs. “I think it’s pretty clear that this President has been paying close attention to this and has been engaging regularly with his national security team,” Carney said, praising Obama for deliberating carefully about the use of force in Iraq.

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president.

Yesterday, it was announced the Obama administration had moved on Sunday to arrest a Benghazi al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Abu Khattala. Many people, including Fox’s James Rosen pointed particular questions to the State Dept. about “why now”? As unbelievable as this might sound, the most likely answer has little to do with what’s currently being pondered as a motive for this administration, “squirrel”. The reality is within the Bergdahl deal, and the GITMO-5 to Qatar, there is a far more likely reason.Ahmed Abu Khattala is directly connected to the covert transfer of U.S. arms from Qatar to Libya in the initial 2011
